Russian Molokan Cemetery - Glendale Arizona

Wooden Stakes and Granite Grave Markers

The Russian Molokan Cemetery in Glendale Arizona features a large flat layout of gravesites marked with traditional wooden Molokan markers as well as granite tombstones.

The gates were locked so I was unable to explore the cemetery. However, since it was located on a stereotypically flat parcel of Arizona land, I was able to read a few markers with my telephoto lens. Names like Tolmachoff and Popoff were frequent amongst the granite grave markers I could read. Unfortunately, I was unable to decern any markings on the wooden grave markers.
